Representatives Indifferent About
Special Session, Bat Agree
on Its Objects. J
A rapid esnsus taksa by Tb Journal
this morning of th opinion hsld by
Multnomah Xeglslatars on ths oaUing of
a special sesslora ; of ths IjlsUtur,
ellolted tfas followlnc sanersi facts:
A majority of tha Reprasntatlves re
sldlnjf in Portland are somewhat ladlfler-
ent as to the proposed extra session, rath'
r deprecating the expense but expressing
a laudable anxiety to carry out the
Wishes of their constituents.
There is a practical unanimity on the
question of taklnr steps to make the
initiative and referendum Immediately
A feeling exists that the appropriation
for the Lewi and Clark Fair should be
most liberal, although an undercurrent of
sentiment la opposed to a figure aa high
as 500,00ft.
. The Legislator as a whole fator the
payment of flat salaries to state officials
but thinnk that the salaries as fixed by
the constitution are contemptibly small,
and will have to be raised to such a figure
as will be reasonable. While still remain
ing democratic, if the fees are cut oft
Following are the synopses of the opin
ions expressed to a Journal representa
JOHN GILL. While I am disposed at
this time to look without favor upon the
proposal for a special session. I am of
the opinion that the status of public
sentiment throughout Oregon ' generally
' should be ascertained, and the decision
made in exact accordance with the wishes
of the people. In the event the people in
dicate with sufficient clarity heir desire
- for It; of course I would favor Jc - The
state should contribute as much towards
the Lewis and Clark appropriation as
- Portland doee. T am In lavsr"f -'tas In
itlative' and referendum and if It Is Inop
erative it should be made operative. The
salaries of officials should be flat The
Governor, in my pinion, should receive
a salary of 3000.
SANDERSON REED. It is not the
business of a Representative to object to
a special session. If the people will feel
any happier by having same it will prob
ably not do much harm. As to the Lewis
and Clark appropriation, I am In favor of
the state appropriating 9300,000 and even
wore. I think tSOQ.OOO to be a reasonable
turn. I am also In favor of making the
Initiative and referendum amendment op
erative by legislation but not in haste.
Another Important question of much lm
. portance to everyone is that of flat sal
aries. The constitution provides a limit
which is disregarded, as the latter is so
small aa to be contemptible In several in
stances. I am In faror of fair compensa
tions for all publlo officials and am sure
that it is not economy to try to squeeie
them on the question of salary.
DAN J. MALARKET. There are many
reasons why a special session should be
' called and there are equally as many why
fixed opinion on the subject. It really
r. makes little difference what! my opinion
may be, as I would have to go to a special
session If called, whether' I wanted to or
not. However, the fact that the matter of
the Lewis and Clark Fair appropriation
will come up at a special or the next reg
ular session of. the Legislature, will have
me as one of its most earnest supporters,
as I am thoroughly In favor of $500,000
appropriation for it. and shall do the best
I can for the bill to pass. As to the
- -Eltlattva-ana referemtemr-I am -quite -at
a loss in the matter, as I don't quite un
derstand the stand taken by many. I con
sider that it is In effect now and that by
reason of the adoption of the amendment
at the last election an Initiative petition
could be filed at any time by not less
than t per cent of the voters, and that
any bill passed by a.ny future session of
the Legislature could be referred to the
people toy petition of 6 of
dEORGE M. ORTON "I was elected to
serve the Interests of my constituents,
and if they are so inclined I am in favor
of a special session of the State Legisla
ture. I shall eertainly vote for a $500,
M0 appropriation for the Lewis and Clark
Fair. That amount is small enough and
should meet with no opposition by any
one in the state, ly understanding is
that the lnlatlve and referendum amend
ment is already in operation, but u a spe
cial act is considered necessary to put
It la force I am in favor of accomplishing
tha result as quickly aa possible."
J. 8. HUTCHINSON "The real neces
sity for a special session, lies largely with
the nature of the call;' As it has been
talked over by taxpayers, not only of this
trat other counties, it seems as though
there are some grounds fqr.a special ses-
aion, owing to the probable interference
with the action jof the Legislature on
these particular matters'. I am ready at
any time to "answer the call whenever
those In authority are ready to take such
action. Personally I am in favor of a'
special session In order to get an ap-
-. proprlatioa lot- the . Fait as quickly
possible. I think that 1500,000 is small
; enauCB U ask for. Regarding the tmtla- j
tive and referendum, I am In favor of any
legislation that Is deemed necessary in
order to make it effective at once.'
A. At BAILEY "I do not see any real
necessity" for- a ' special r session of ' the'
Etate .Legislature. It seems to me that
everything can be doner' at the regular
session, and thus "save an unnecessary
expense to the taxpayers. I shall certain
ly vote for a $500,000 appropriation for
the Fair. " I am a great believer in ad
vertising and that enterprise will be a
great thing for the state and entire
Northwest - It will bo money well spent,
being the means of showing people of the
Eastern states the boundless possibilities
of the West I do not think that it wiU
require, any special legislation to Insure
the. Immediate operation of the initiative
and referendum amendment, but if so I
am In favor of It ' I am also in favor of
carrying out promises made by the Legis
lative delegation from this county in ref
erence to the charter."
8. B. COBBS "I am not in favor of a
special session of the Legislature, because
I see no necessity for It as tha work can
bo done In regular session and so much
money can be saved to the state. .As to
the appropriation, I am in favor of a
liberal appropriation, 'the amount of
which I have sot as yet decided on. If
the Initiative and referendum is not ope
rative in itself, I am in favor of a law
to be passed putting the Initiative end
referendum into immediate operation, in
response to the expression of the people
of Oregon. As to flat "salaries, provided
the duties of the different state officials
could be specified and It would not be un
constitutional, I would be In favor of Leg
islative action being taken on It."
W. W. Banks "I have bten opposed
to, a special session of the . Legl'ilMture
fof the reason that the good to sworn- ,
ptlshed over and above whet ( "iiUl )e I
attained at the regular session vo!d not l
justify the expense. The iyuhou un
signed by the executive commi'tee of the
Taxpayers .League for : culling a ...extra
session have considerable force, on 1
coming from repres-jntativt- fnc-n must b
given careful consideration. Among,
these reason are the necessity for nn
early passage of the new rlty charter,
the appropriation for the Lewis nnd
Clark Fair and the Initiative find refer
endum. I believe that with ,1 united del
egation in favor of these measures from
this county there will be no difficulty in
passing them.
If it were not for the fear that these
important measures wl;l befome en
tangled with the Senatorial proVdem, th
clamor for a special seEsinn would not
exist and I believe the d-.-legatPs from
this county may be depended ti to see
that proper legislation will not be de
feated through , the petty Jiaiousicsof
party" politics. ;

Certain questions whlchiave arisen, and
which in our Judgment should be acts i

view of the fact that a Senator Is to be
chosen at .the next regular session, nnd
the ordinary business of the state Is of
such moment that' It will require all c

matters as to you or to other citizens cf

First We belie that in view of the f
fact that at the election held in June
last an amendment t the Constitution
was adopted. Incorporating the principles
of the initiative and referendum into our
organic act and that the same was adopt

doubt as to the amendment being self

PARIS, Oct. 22,-Flve thousand persons,
including the most eminent scientists of
the world, at 2 O'clock this afternoon wit

Great Interest was taken in the event and

It was the first attempt of this kind since
Flammarion swung a 60-pound weight
from a wire 224 feet long and suspended
the latter from the dome of the Pantheon.
The deviation In the line of the pendulum
in a direction contrary to that of the
rotation of the earth was marked. Thou

of the experiment.
This is the great" demonstration of
